C. Multiple modes

118 | 12.01.2024 | IRCGuide

You can combine many mode changes on one line (typically 4). For instance, if you want to give four people ops, you can: /mode #mychan +oooo nick1 nick2 nick3 nick4. You can also combine + and - modes, such as /mode #mychan +vv- vv nick1 nick2 nick3 nick4 would give voice to nick1 and nick2, but take it away from nick3 and nick4. Likewise, /mode #channel +sti-lm would activate secret, topic, and invite-only modes, and deactivate the limit and moderated modes. If you are defending against an attack, it may be necessary to use these multiple modes to act as quickly as possible. Naturally, any of these mode commands can be used for both offense and defense, so be careful.
